Dota 2 announced!

Postby frozd » Oct 19 2010, 10:11

Valve and IceFrog teamed up to create dota 2. In short they'll port all the heroes, items and won't change the gameplay much. It's going to be stand alone and much much more. For further info go here.

I'm quite excited about this. What are your thoughts on it?

A non-FPS from Valve... about time. Kinda sad that it's a sequel though...

I had a Dota fever something like a year ago. It's now passed. It'll take a great deal of improvements to make me turn my attention at it again.

Right now, I'm focused on starting a family, rather than playing would-be sequels. There must have a reason to put a 2 in front of it, rather than just making it all over again with better graphics or so, like that HoN looked like in a first glance.

So if they make it good enough you'll renounce your prospective family?! Good to know.

Nay, perhaps lose a bit of my focus, but really, really, really? No, I will not play it regardless how well done it'll be. ;)

Valve dropping the bomb with dota 2 starting tourney of top 16 dota teams and a OMG 1 million $ prize money for the team that's first. Don't belive me?

Incredible isn't it? :)

I think once DotA 2 is released, all of DotA, LoL and HoN will lose to it. HoN's already losing ground to LoL (which I suppose is why it just went F2P, modelling on LoL's model even). I know I don't plan to play HoN after DotA 2's release. That's what HoN gets for being so badly balanced :devil:

Yeah i stopped playing HoN after it went out of open beta. S2 are a bunch of retarded amateurs sorry for saying it like that but it's true. They had such a great game potential but threw it away like a bunch of morons that they are. Dota 2 will crush unless Valve S2 it, wait and see is what I think.

Yeah, they do. I still hear things like: "Let's play Dota?" - at the LAN house. Well, it's expected from games we usually have fun.

Congrats to Navi for winning $1 million!

Also looking forward to DotA 2, no matter how long it'll be delayed. I've got romances with old favourites to continue.

I loved playing with the Harbinger (perhaps because it shares the name of my favourite gym accessory company?), Bloodseeker, Raijin, Troll, Enigma and Juggernaut. :D I'd like to see them again.

Oh, yes, not that I played a lot like some of my friends. They were playing almost since the beginning. I got to play after years, already. It was not a high number of times that I was the main killer of a match, you see. :) Sometimes Harbinger, if feeded and with the right items, would really bring doom to my opponents.

When I stopped playing, some abilities were still too imba. I think it was just about when they introduced two new characters, one sort of Ice Elemental and a black critter, similar to a crawling minnion. It was something like...1-2 years ago, I think.

Ancient Apparition and Slark - that wasn't too long ago, was a fairly recent patch.

I used to play DotA a lot, but have long since switched to HoN, for mainly gameplay reasons: it has better interface, matchmaking, autohotkeys and more. Nonetheless I find HoN quite badly balanced. When DotA 2 is released, as long as it keeps all these innovations from HoN I'll switch to it.

Hum, but I think at least 1 year is gone from that patch. More characters were introduced, no? Like that phoenix, the last time I checked.

People tried to convince me to play HoN too, but I found it so imba I couldn't really help not to avoid it. It had nice graphics though. :)

Have you checked Dota2 artwork? Quite nice.
